Climate Action Collective to Bring New Global Voices into Columbia’s Climate Response

Columbia World Projects (CWP) has announced the launch of the Climate Action Collective, a global network of stakeholders who will work together to identify key climate challenges that Columbia can help tackle through its teaching, research and global programming.

The collective will be led by CWP, Columbia Global Centers, the Columbia Climate School and ICAP, Columbia University’s center for global health.

“The Climate Action Collective will bring new global partners from outside the university together with Columbia’s top climate experts to inform our research and programming in ways that prioritize the needs of marginalized communities harmed by climate change,” said Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger.
